Hello Pinwheel!

Hello! {waving} Welcome to your first stop on Paper Makeup Stamps September Release Blog Hop! My card today features the Pinwheel image that complements the pinwheel-blowing Kat Fairy. I used the cuttlebug candy cane stripe embossing folder on the panels of colored paper. The "Hello!" sentiment is from this month's Little Moments set. For the pinwheel itself, I stamped and colored it three times so I could cut out and layer it for more dimension. Here is a close-up of that.


I added stickles to the green sections for some sparkle and outlined the entire pinwheel in yellow to help frame it on the card. I was so excited to find that tiny button in my collection to help finish off the center of it. {grin}


Here is your first letter towards your discount code for this month's release. We hope you'll join us tonight at the PMS forum for some fun games and chatter at our Release Party. There will be a couple challenges that you can play along with this week too. {yay!} And now it's time to hop to Andrea's blog and see what fantastic feat of Crafty Engineering she has for you today!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the beary best!

Gorgeous bright colors!! Love the geometric background - kinda reminds me of the Partridge family-sort of has a funky retro feel to it :0) and of course the layering and button are tops!
